Special Encore Presentation: Innovating for the New Finance Organization
August 19, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Change. Managing the roles and functions of Finance can be challenging, from compliance complexities and managing cash, to closing the books and building business plans, while contending with economic, regulatory and competitive forces and internal customers. Software vendors are trying to help Finance run more efficiently and cope with constant change. The experts speak. Rob Kugel, Ventana: “Never ask of money spent, where the spender thinks it went. Nobody was ever meant, to remember or invent, what he did with every cent.” (Robert Frost). Renee Ford, Accenture: “The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” (Bill Gates). Birgit Starmanns, SAP: “It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.” (Shanna LaFleur). Join us for Innovating for the "New" Finance Organization.
